About the Sawbar :

The Sawbar is a Legendary Weapon in Borderlands 3. This COV Assault Rifle is your fireworks weapon. The bullets of the Sawbar split into 3 projectiles that travel outwards at an angle before exploding. If you manage to get the distance between you and your enemy right, the Sawbar can deal good damage. However, this requires some practice and enemies like to move around.

Special Weapon Effect:

“Suppressing Fires!”

  • Always incendiary.
  • Bullets spawn 3 additional projectiles after a set distance. These additional projectiles travel outwards and explode mid-air.


  • Incendiary: Fire damage is strong against Flesh and can cause targets to burn. Burning deals high damage over a 5-second duration.
  • Elemental Damage Guide
